We recently saw the Hisuian variants of Zoruar and Zoroark in the clever found-footage styled reveal that had players excited to see more. Now we’re getting a better look at them in Legends Arceus itself and seeing just how deadly these lovely looking Pokémon can be in a fight. These soft and sorrowful Pokémon live in the colder climate of the Hisui region, where their ethereal forms seem both fitting and frigid to the bone to look at. The lore for these Pokémon says that many years ago they were driven from other lands by humans before they perished in the cold climate and their lingering souls became the ghost-type Pokémon we see today.
Both Zorua and Zoroark are known to cause illusions and feed off of the fear of humans, with Zoroark being fiercely aggressive and protective of its children. Zoroark has been said to even drive humans to complete madness with terror, which is one of many possible outcomes to the original professor who happened upon them in the footage we saw before.
Pokémon Legends: Arceus launches on January 28. Check out the latest trailer below:
